My pet cheese;
The first answer to a question is posted, the next 15 posts are exactly the same answer as the first repeated over and over!

Someone stole all of my photography equipment and replaced it with exact duplicates.

Yes, $249 for a year and it's the best money I spend on my business since opening up my studio 7 years ago.

Why would someone spend $1000 for the John Hartman Boot Camp?

$1000 or more to attend the PPA/WPPI Convention?

SPA (Senior Portrait Artist) Convention?

SYNC (Senior Youth National Conference) Convention?

Your State's PPA Organization/Conventio​ns?

etc. etc. etc.

Well folks its because the top photographers value their education and it keeps them on top in their area. I'm off to SYNC in a week and a half and have my plans to attend my states PPW Convention in March. Spending money on my education has made me the best photographer in my area and I plan on staying there.

Not bragging here guys, actually I'm a rather humble person and I go out of my way to help someone along. However they must be doing the right things.

What's it like being full of yourself?

^^ Well, the most expensive photo ever sold is not what I'd call "the best" photo in the world either.

Each to their own I suppose. I am very, very, very far from being "the best" but I enjoy myself (for free too). :p ;)

you just redefine stealthy everyday don't you

I don't call myself the best either, but I keep learning and maybe one day I can say that I am. Not that it means much to most.

You know, where I come from " the best" and " top" are kinda the same thing. It is okay though because I see we have different languages. Where I am at humble means something else too;)

Well...as I thought. A quick Google search easily turns up someone in your area that not only has a better website which is faster, but also has better photos. I guess best is a subjective term in Washington.

Just wondering how you know that you're the best photographer in your area. What yardstick did you use to gauge this lofty title?
